This epic is for the upgrade of Django for the edx-platform and related satellite repositories to Django 1.8 - > 1.11
The origin document for this work: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iuhoGLmpqKg2XcPvpDzzvmmL4SKt6X5KQIxaydrAKgM/edit#
When this epic is finished we will know or have:
A list of all satellite repositories, their current django version compatibility and ticketing to upgrade them if necessary
A list of all edx-platform dependencies that are dependent on Django, their current compatibility
Ticketing for feature teams to review any dependencies they use that are not being updated or are not ready for Django 1.11 to enable those teams to decide what they would like to do with these dependencies (fork them, submit a patch, substitute an equivalent dependency, ??)
Some automation or exploration of automation that will allow us find these dependencies and report on them.
